8 December 2012. Willard Romney… Satanic Deceiver… the Apostle of Mammon

Boris Olshansky. Jesus and the Money-Changers. 2006

Willard Romney tried to present himself as an ethical and moral Christian… I DO beg your pardon! This is what that poseur believes:

…the Church [LDS] proclaims the eternal truth: “As man is, God once was; as God is, man may become”.

Articles of Faith, Chapter 24

It is the first principle of the Gospel [of Mormonism] to know for a certainty the character of God… and that he was once a man like us.

Joseph Smith, Journal of Discourses, Volume 6, Page 3

God the Father is a perfected, glorified, holy Man, an immortal Personage. And Christ was born… in the same personal, real, and literal sense that any mortal son is born to a mortal father…

Bruce McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, page 742

******

In short, if you voted for Romney, you voted for a consciously anti-Christian deceiver and charlatan. What does that tell you about James Paffhausen, Patrick Reardon, Rod Dreher, Terrence Mattingly, Matthias Moriak, Victor Potapov, and Michael Dahulich? It tells you that they either don’t care that a man is a confessor of satanic untruth or that they didn’t know what the Mormon sect teaches (not very likely, but it’s a possibility (slight)). That’s why the konvertsy and those who agree with them aren’t really one with us or one of us. Either they’re drooling ignoramuses who can’t see the truth in front of them, or, they’re votaries of Almighty Mammon, who bow before the Almighty Dollar, NOT Almighty God. Remember, Our Lord Christ drove the fatcat merchants out of the temple… He didn’t drive out the old, the weak, and the poor. I think that the people I named would do the opposite… in the name of Christ! Now, that’s a meaty bone to gnaw upon. Keep it focused, the Orthodox rightwingers voted for a godless sectarian who denies everything that we stand for as Christians… his “niceness” and “morality” were nothing but slick exterior packaging to fool the superficial. Satan has many traps; he baits them with apparently-good things. If I had one thing to say to you, I’d say:

Stay away from the pro-lifers… they believe in capital punishment, wink at perpetual warfare, and support a rapacious economic system where the rich prey on all others (whereas HH teaches that the Free Market‘s a fraud). Give anonymously to single moms and support politicians who’ll keep the social safety net whole (even if they’re unbelievers). Stand for what’s good for all… not for “what’s good for you”.

Do reflect on the difference…

Putin Spokesman Dmitri Peskov Sez Playing with Religion in Russia Dangerous

These people are America‘s Pussy Riot… think about it…

I’m using an “old” story for a reason. Check out my comments after the article.

Playing with people’s religious feelings in Russia is dangerous, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitri Peskov said in commentary on the case of female punk group Pussy Riot, telling the Dozhd TV channel on Thursday, “In this country playing with nationalities, playing with religion, is the same as smoking at a filling station”. An edited clip of the Pussy Riot protest posted online showed the group alternately high-kicking and crossing themselves near the entrance to the altar of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, accompanying their song Holy Shit, urging the Virgin Mary to “drive Putin out”. The song contained words insulting to Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias and rude references to believers.

A Moscow court found three band members guilty of hooliganism; it sentenced them to two years imprisonment each on 17 August. This attracted both media attention and international criticism, which Moscow dismissed as “groundless” saying the band’s act was not an issue of artistic performance, but was “insulting to millions of Orthodox believers”. Peskov observed, “Most probably, I belong to the part of society that’s genuinely indignant and believes that such deeds should be punished very harshly”.

Editor’s Afterword:

This is a little old, but it hasn’t lost its relevance. No one has the right to play with another person’s religious observance or beliefs in certain venues. Online, there’s a vigorous debate; let the devil take the hindmost! We can be harsh and astringent… if the situation calls for it. One can be blunt, for the internet is the agora of today’s society… you meet everything and everybody there, it’s an open space, full of life and discussion.

However, in our relations to living institutions and living people, we have responsibilities to one another. The Mormons are chock fulla shit… there are fewer groups more offensive in their greedy rapaciousness or more full of arrant lies (The Book of Mormon is the looniest “scripture” ever created… only an American sectarian could’ve thought it up). However, I’m not going to disrupt a Mormon “service”… I don’t have that right. In like manner, the protesters from “Westboro Baptist Church” at soldiers’ funerals don’t have the right to disrupt them. It’s shouting “fire” in a crowded auditorium, I say… it’s looking for trouble, and, one day, they’re going to find it, and they’re not going to like it one bit (I’d love to see it though, and I’m not alone in thinking that way).

Terry Jones is an arrant liar and extremist rabble-rouser. However, I have no right to disrupt his church services. There are simple souls in his congregation that I wouldn’t wish to hurt. I think that Freddie M-G has a lotta brass to demand that people fork over 25 bucks (785 Roubles. 20 Euros. 16 UK Pounds) apiece to hear her speak. Yet, I’m of the opinion that if you’re stupid enough to pay such an extortionate fee, I’ll not stop Freddie from fleecing you. I’d heckle her good n’ hard, though… a lecture isn’t a church service, a funeral, baptism, wedding, or other family celebration… all of which merit our respect.

In other words, we can be harsh on JP and his nasty lying claque in the agora. Such isn’t only our right; it’s our duty to the truth. On the other hand, we must pay an honourable homage to his sister’s passing and respect the services marking that passing. That’s what decent people do… both so-called “believers” and “non-believers” alike… I think that I have much company in thinking that.

10 June 2012. A Point of Unity… Ethiopian Believer in Jerusalem for Holy Week…

_____________________________

This is at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem, in the portion set aside for Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo believers. Eastern OrthodoxArmenian Apostolic, Roman CatholicCoptic Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo, and Syriac Orthodox believers all have their places here. These groups are all indisputably Christian. As for all others, my belief is that Reformation Protestants, whether “high” Lutheran/Reformed Evangelicals or “low” Mennonite/(non-SBC) Baptists, are also within the boundaries of Christendom. American Sectarians are NOT… that is, “Evangelicals“, JWs, Mormons, and Pentecostalists aren’t really Christian, in the truest sense of the word. Think on it… after all, what REAL Christian would put credence in a notional Book of Mormon or in “giving your heart to Jayzuss?” Our Lord Christ existed… and the facts of his life and teaching don’t jibe with American Sectarianism.

Pray for such people… they know not what they do. On the other hand, this Ethiopian Orthodox woman does know… can’t you tell?
